Bush had eight solo tackles, a sack and a forced fumble in 15 games this season.
Bush played only 42 defensive snaps for the season through Week 15, but took over as a starter at safety after Eddie Jackson's ankle injury. Bush then started the final three games of the season -- including the wild-card loss to the Eagles -- and played well as a fill-in. the 25-year-old remains under contract for 2019 and is likely to serve in a reserve role at safety, though one the starting positions remains a question mark with Adrian Amos headed for free agency.
Bush is expected to start at free safety against the 49ers on Sunday, Kevin Fishbain of The Athletic reports.
Bush, who has not yet exceeded 15 defensive snaps in a single game this season, is on track to draw his first start against the 49ers. Defensive coordinator Vic Fangio said Thursday that he's "anxious to see him [Bush] play." If Bush is able to show well, he'll likely continue to start as long as Eddie Jackson (ankle) remains sidelined.
Bush (hamstring) avoided Wednesday's injury report, Rich Campbell of the Chicago Tribune reports.
Bush's absence from Wednesday's report bodes well for his chances of playing in Sunday's game against Green Bay. While he'll likely revert to a special teams role, Bush provides the Bears with added depth in the secondary should they need it.
Bush (hamstring) is inactive for Sunday night's game against the Rams.
Bush's absence will mostly be felt on special teams. He has five tackles and one sack on the year.
Bush (hamstring) is doubtful for Sunday's game against the Rams.
Bush did not practice Friday, and he appears to be trending towards missing his first game of the season. The third-year pro has taken only two defensive snaps in his previous three games, so Chicago's defense would likely escape unscathed if he were unable to suit up Week 14.
